J. S. Bach: The Trio Sonatas
Taylor & Boody organ
Saint Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue, New York City
Joan Lippincott, organist
Not all great organ music is big and bombastic—as these sonatas prove! Requiring flawless technique on the part of the player, these three-movement chamber works are delightful pieces on the surface; deeper analysis reveals marvelously constructed compositions that could only spring from the mind of J.S. Bach.
Lippincott plays the perfectly-suited Taylor and Boody organ at St Thomas Church, NY. Extensive notes by Bach scholar, George Stauffer.
